I had to take a break from my Newbery book contender reviews to share this great resource I just stumbled upon with those of you who are teachers and/or educators. A site named Brad's Deals has compiled a list of 83 businesses that give some kind of price break to teachers and educators. A lot of them I knew about and already use--Barnes & Noble and Apple Computer and Jo Ann's Fabrics and such--but this list is MUCH more extensive than any I've seen before. It includes not only education-related businesses, like bookstores and craft stores and computers and educational supplies, but stores that sell lots of other things as well--cell phone, clothing, travel, contacts, insurance, vacation sites, and even pizza!
I haven't checked them out, and the article doesn't say, but usually these discounts are also available for homeschoolers, at least in stores around here.
